Named Points

Create named points that can be referenced by geometry and requests, similar to variables.

The X coordinate, Y coordinate and Z coordinate of a point can be accessed using a dot followed by the required component.

For example, Point1.x gives access to the X coordinate of named point, Point1.

Points can also be constructed using the “pt” command.

For example, the expression pt(1,1,1) + pt(2,1,1) results in a point definition of pt(3,2,2).
The following actions are allowed on points:
  • The subtract and add operations are allowed between two points.
  • A point may be multiplied or divided by a scalar.
  • The distance from the origin to a point is obtained using the abs function.
